Once Coyote lost all his belongings, while crossing the river with his friends. He became very sad … and also jealous. So Coyote challenged the others to win their possessions and they agreed. Being a trickster, he invented a bluffing game, in which everyone had to lie, as nobody would know the truth. Rumor has it the game was quite similar to this one!
In this bluffing game by Spartaco Albertarelli you always see the cards of the others, but never your own. When it’s your turn, you must announce a number that is less than the total of all the cards in the game, increasing the previous number. Alternatively, you can challenge the number previously announced. Finally, when all the cards are revealed, it is revealed who has the cunning Coyote on their side.
1. Declare the total value of all cards in play. Sounds easy, except you don’t see your own card.
2. When Coyote asks for your turn, you either raise or challenge the previous bid. Try to fool the others as much as possible.
3. If you get caught bidding too high, you lose the challenge. But there will be more challenges to come!
